My friend Rose made this most ingenious quilt. She purchased a “tufted” orange bedspread and cut large circles from wild fabrics for big yo-yos that she hand stitched at each “tuft”. “Tuft” is not the right word but I can’t think of a better one. The fabric was pulled together and stitched or gathered at equal distances across the spread.
Then another yo-yo was positioned in the space between. She brought it for Connie and I to see her work in progress when she visited last month. Can you imagine holding that big orange spread while hand stitching all those yo-yos? It would be hard! Nothing is impossible for Rose! We always love to see what she’s working on.
The goats are creating havoc on the few plants and shrubs left in my yard. Here is Emma reaching for the very top of the lilac bush. It’s a reach but where there’s a will there’s a way.
